Labor Day Happenings

Hi Everyone,

Just stopping by to show you a glimpse of what Mr. Bluebird & I will be working on this weekend.

The kitchen chair seats are getting a facelift with the pretty new fabric I showed you here.

Two are already finished - such an easy thing to do!  I love that the new fabric is outdoor rated, it should be easy to keep clean and will stay fresh looking for awhile.

We are also painting the kitchen chairs, which are currently black.  They are getting a chalk paint re-do and yes, I am using every one of the paint colors I showed you here. EVERY SINGLE ONE.

Even the much maligned "Bordello" shown in the picture below.  I actually love this color on the chair even more than in the pot.  And it is a beautiful complement to the chair fabric.

Have no fear!  The paint is being used in a surprising way.  Two chairs are already started and I am pretty darned sure I am going to like love it!  Hope the weekend will end with this project being done.  Mr. Bluebird has some golf to get in, so that remains to be seen.

Wishing you all a wonderful Labor Day!  I, for one, am grateful for the wonderful job I have and feel very lucky to work with great people!

Wishing you happiness,


  1. Very pretty fabric you chose! It's great to not only have a job you enjoy but to also enjoy the people you work with!

  2. Can't wait to see your chairs when they're finished! Sounds like you're doing some "labor" this weekend.

  3. I'm so curious with that paint?! the cushions are looking fab Jane! Can't wait to see it all!
